Pitso: There are two signings we want to make

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is still keen on bringing Khama Billiat and Aubrey Modiba to Chloorkop before the end of the transfer window.

The transfer window closes on September 2 and surprisingly Sundowns have only signed two players in the current transfer window, Uruguayan striker Mauricio Affonso and defender Nyiko Mobbie from Free State Stars, with the latter going out on loan to Stellenbosch FC.

Billiat and Modiba have been heavily linked with moves to the Brazilians and Mosimane has fuelled the speculation by saying that 'there are two signings' he 'wants to make'.

“There are two signings we want to make. They will take us to another level. We need players who will give competition to the players who are in the starting XI," said the Masandawana mentor.

"If they are not coming to do that, why bring them? We are duplicating, signing because we have resources? There has never been an issue to sign players, but can you put it together? That’s the thing."

The Downs tactician said the club would not compromise on the players they want to bring to the club.

“We want the players we want. Those players we want we think they will make a difference," said Mosimane.

"We don’t want players because we want to sign players – we have got enough. We still have Aubrey Ngoma, Jeremy Brockie, they are still here.

"[Bidvest Wits head coach] Gavin Hunt said everyone has a price. I’ve said the same thing. He thinks different, but other clubs don’t want to sell.

"We have lost important players in the past. We lost [Bongani] Zungu, we lost [Percy] Tau. We lost Khama [Billiat] and Keagan [Dolly], but we kept going. Sundowns always have a succession plan."
